Transport from the airport and hotel query

I am going to be in Charleston for a few days and would like to stay near downtown at a reasonable hotel that is within walking distance of downtown restaurants and attractions. Any suggestions?

Do buses run from the airport or is a taxi your only option?

There are airport shuttles.

Note that when you are making hotel reservations you want Historic District NOT Downtown.

Define "reasonable" (it's different for everyone) in $$$, please, then we can better help you.

The only part of town that is reasonably "walkable" to restaurants, etc is the historic district. "Downtown" won't be walkable to much of anything.

Holiday Inn Historic District, Hampton Inn, Embassy Suites, Francis Marion Hotel, or anything south of Calhoun Street.

The hotels on Lockwood Boulevard and those near the hospitals (Comfort Inn, etc) are not convenient.

When you have collected some possibilities, we can advise better.

Shuttle from airport is $14. Cab will run in the $30 range. You get them at the same kiosk outside of baggage claim.
